Review: Filthy English by Ilsa Madden-Mills

A smokin’ hot British player…
A jilted girl…
One night of mistaken identity…

Two weeks before her wedding, Remi Montague’s fiancé drops her faster than a drunken sorority girl in stilettos. Armed with her best friend and a bottle of tequila, she hops a plane to London to drown her sorrows before fall semester begins at Whitman University.

She didn't plan on attending a masquerade party. She sure didn’t plan on waking up next to the British bad boy who broke her heart three years ago—the devastatingly handsome and naked Dax Blay. Furthermore, she has no clue how they acquired matching tattoos.

Once back at Whitman together, they endeavor to pretend they never had their night of unbridled passion in London.

But that’s damn hard to do when you live in the same house…

One night. Two damaged hearts. The passion of a lifetime.

*A modern love story inspired by Romeo and Juliet*

**no one dies in the writing of this novel**

This book is a full-length novel. Also included are the first few chapters of Dirty English. 

Review by April (ARC received for an honest review)

Another manic book rambling brought to you by April;

5 'Wham, bam. Score!'Stars!!!!!!

Dax! Freaking! Blay!! Where have you been all my life?! Thank you for taking over Ilsa's brain and sharing your sexy self with us book loving nerds. Yes, I just thanked a fictional character LOL. Apparently I'm waving my book nerd flag proudly in this review.

'He was a drug; his body the antidote to all the sadness I'd suffered.'

This book, this story line, Dax, Remi, Ilsa's author mastermind of brilliant proportions--EVERYTHING about this book is just simply amazing! I was left completely floored and in awe at the sheer brilliance of it all. A top read of 2016, hands down!

'Fate. She's a tricky bitch and the mere change in a footstep, the choice to take a different path, creates a synchronism of moments that alight and fall gently into place, like a butterfly that unerringly finds its way home no matter the distance. Fate had found me and kicked me in the stomach--hell, she'd just tossed me to the wolves.'

I've read every book that Ilsa Madden-Mills has published to date and in my book nerd opinion, Filthy English takes the cake! Her best work to date, a book that I can't stop gushing about to everyone. YOU HAVE TO READ THIS BOOK!!!!!! Books are my drug of choice and I am a big time pusher, no shame here. So, what are you waiting for? READ THIS BOOK!

'Life has just bitch-slapped me right across the face with the coincidence of a lifetime.'

A second chance romance based on Romeo & Juilet. Filthy English is the epitome--the full meal deal of the literary roller-coaster ride we all crave. All the feeeeeeeels!!! GAH! I adore this book! There's such a delicious slow burn to this story line, it's tantalizingly angsty, dripping with lust, sexual tension, heartbreak, and maybe a side dish of love *wink* Thankfully Ilsa doesn't pull a Shakespeare and kill them off. BUT she just about drove me off the deep end at times. The push and pull between Dax and Remi was enough to rattle anyone's nerves. Hilarious banter at just the right moments helped balance the story and pacing. This is a book you can't help but devour in one sitting. It's utterly enthralling and addictive.

'The thing is, Dax is a temporary guy and I'm a forever girl, and the two didn't go together. Ever.'

What briefly started 3 years ago, could be the love of a lifetime if they just give in and let it happen. A love for the ages. Two lost souls, tattered with baggage--starring each other in the eyes.

'This was fate, weaving her tapestry, making us part of her intricate plan.'

I just can't even. *insert book hangover here*
